HR Dragon Coloring Book

The other day, I fell into the pit of distraction, otherwise known as Pinterest. My recommended Pinterest feed is very diverse, as it is a compilation of tattoo designs, children’s art activities, yin yoga flows, and gluten-free recipes. But on this particular day, it was a doodle that captured my attention, a how-to doodle a dragon to be exact.

Iguanas and Me!!

When I look at my Connected Canvas from the beginning of 2019 the image that always stands out to me the most is the picture of the iguanas on the beach and the rest just didn’t speak to me. I truthfully thought this image spoke to me because of my awesome years spent living in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and the interactions we had at that time with the iguana’s on the island. But on a whim I looked up what Iguanas symbolize and below are excerpts from whatismyspiritanimal.com and how it relates to me and my board. Once I did that the iguana image as well as the rest of the board seemed to make sense to me.
